I have been trying to find wilderness first aid training outside of the twin cities. Anyone know of any? I'm in the Brainerd area. Doesn't need to be this summer; any time in the next year is fine. I'm just not finding anything outside of Mpls. Thanks.

Check with your local BSA council. WFA is now a requirement for Scout troops doing high adventure trips. My last class was only $40.

Try Outward Bound in Ely... Great place to take the course. I did my WFR there.
